Royals' Mike Montgomery: Will enter KC rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery will join Kansas City's rotation and start Friday's game against the Indians, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Montgomery has struggled out of the bullpen with the Cubs in 2019, so the Royals have elected to stretch him back out to a starting role following the trade. It's unclear how long he'll be able to go Friday, considering he's been used as a reliever so far this season. The lefty made 19 starts in 2018 while with Chicago.

Royals' Mike Montgomery: Dealt to Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery was traded from the Cubs to the Royals on Monday in exchange for Martin Maldonado, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Montgomery has struggled out of the bullpen this season for Chicago, posting a 5.67 ERA and 1.78 WHIP with 18 strikeouts across 27 innings. After surrendering eight runs over his last three appearances (eight frames), a change of scenery may be just what the southpaw needs to get back on track.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Pitches poorly in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery allowed five runs on six hits and three walks over 2.1 innings in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Reds. He struck out one.

Montgomery was thrust into action early, as starter Cole Hamels departed after one inning with an oblique strain, and he didn't help the Cubs' cause. Hamels was still tagged with the loss by allowing one run in his lone inning, but Montgomery let the floodgates open. The lefty long reliever has struggled this season with a 6.08 ERA across 23.2 innings of work, and he's also dealt with lat and finger injuries that have cost him some time.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Available Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (finger) will be available to pitch Tuesday night against the Astros, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Montgomery's finger issue appears to be a thing of the past, and he stated that he can come out of the bullpen in the second game of the series if needed. The lefty owns a 4.61 ERA with 10 strikeouts over 13.2 innings this season.

May 27, 2019 06:04 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Hopeful to return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (finger) is optimistic that he'll be able to return as soon as Tuesday against Houston, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Montgomery was pulled from Monday's series opener before even throwing a pitch after experiencing discomfort in his left middle finger during his warmups. Fortunately, the swelling has since subsided. This isn't expected to be a long-term injury for the southpaw, though the team will likely re-evaluate Montgomery upon his arrival at the ballpark Tuesday.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Dealing with finger discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery left Monday's game against the Astros with left middle finger discomfort, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The exact details remain unclear, but Montgomery is reportedly not dealing with a blister. He left with a trainer before throwing a pitch in Monday's contest.

May 27, 2019 04:00 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Exits before throwing pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery left Monday's game against Houston with a trainer before throwing a pitch, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Montgomery was checked out by manager Joe Maddon and team trainers while throwing his warmup pitches and was pulled before facing his first hitter. The nature of his injury isn't clear.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Picks up first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (1-0) pitched five scoreless innings and earned the win in Thursday's 4-1 victory over the Marlins. He allowed three hits and two walks, while striking out three.

This was Montgomery's first appearance since returning from a month-long stint on the injured list due to a lat issue, and the lefty looked sharp. With starter Yu Darvish needing 97 pitches to cover four innings, Montgomery did the Chicago bullpen a solid by covering five innings. The 29-year-old has started 56 games in his MLB career, including 19 a season ago, so he's certainly capable of giving the Cubs some length from a long-relief role.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) returned from the injured list Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Montgomery made just four appearances before landing on the injured list in early April, allowing six runs (five earned) in 2.2 innings. Pedro Strop (hamstring) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

April 26, 2019 08:04 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Rehab outing on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) is expected to make another rehab appearance Saturday for Triple-A Iowa, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Montgomery will be required to make at least one more rehab outing before his activation from the injured list. He's made just four appearances for the Cubs in 2019 due to a lat issue.

April 21, 2019 02:08 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Rehab appearance coming Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) will make another rehab appearance for Double-A Tennessee on Monday, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

Montgomery has battled the lat issue since early April. It's unclear whether or not Monday's appearance will be his final one before returning to the big leagues.

April 19, 2019 11:44 AM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Needs another rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) will require at least one more rehab appearance before returning to the Cubs, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Montgomery made an appearance for Low-A South Bend on Wednesday, striking out four of the seven batters he faced over a pair of scoreless innings. He's throwing a bullpen session Friday and will make at least one more rehab appearance, but he could be back early next week if he's cleared following that outing.

April 17, 2019 04:16 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Rehab set for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) will make a rehab appearance for Low-A South Bend on Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Montgomery was originally scheduled to pitch for South Bend on Tuesday before his wife gave birth. It's still unclear how many rehab appearances the southpaw will need before rejoining the Cubs.

April 16, 2019 04:16 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Rehab bumped back by birth of child
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) won't make a rehab appearance Tuesday for Low-A South Bend as originally scheduled, as his wife gave birth Tuesday morning.

The delay shouldn't push Montgomery's timeline back too much, as he could make an appearance as soon as Wednesday. It remains unclear how many rehab appearances Montgomery will require before the Cubs activate him from the injured list.

April 15, 2019 05:40 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Scheduled for rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) is scheduled to pitch for Low-A South Bend on Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Montgomery has been cleared for game action after completing a bullpen session with no issues last week. Assuming his wife doesn't go into labor before Tuesday, the southpaw will pitch two innings for the South Bend Cubs before being re-evaluated.

April 12, 2019 10:52 AM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Another bullpen scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) threw 26 pitches in a bullpen session Thursday and will throw at least one more before the Cubs set a return date for him, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Montgomery has been on the injured list since Saturday, but his absence isn't expected to be particularly lengthy. He's eligible to return Monday but appears to need a little more time than that, with the Cubs' homestand beginning on April 19 a more realistic target.

April 10, 2019 05:32 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Scheduled for mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Montgomery played catch out to 120 feet Wednesday and reported no issues, clearing the way for him to resume mound work. The southpaw is hoping to return from the injured list when first eligible next week, though whether that happens will likely depend on how Montgomery responds to his upcoming mound sessions.

April 11, 2019 01:24 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Plays catch Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery (lat) played catch Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

It's already Montgomery's second injury-related problem this season. If all goes well, Montgomery is eligible to return April 16. In his absence, the Cubs have turned to Kyle Ryan, who has given up two runs on three hits across two innings of relief since getting called up.

April 6, 2019 06:44 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Dealing with lat issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery is battling a lat issue which is separate from the injury he suffered early in camp, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

It's presumably a positive that Montgomery isn't dealing with a recurrence of the same injury, but it's a concern that he's now had two separate shoulder problems, especially since he also battled shoulder issues last season. He plans to play catch Sunday and hopes to only miss the minimum 10 required days on the injured list.

April 6, 2019 04:20 PM
Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery was placed on the injured list with an undisclosed injury Saturday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Montgomery battled shoulder problems in camp and hasn't looked good through his first four appearances of the season, allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits in just 2.2 innings. Kyle Ryan is expected to take his place in the bullpen.
